COMPREHENSIVE INSTRUCTION AND ASCENT OF MOUNT BAKER

This course is a fun­da­men­tal build­ing block for climb­ing Mount Rain­er and pro­vides moun­taineer­ing skills for snow, ice and glac­i­ers. In a stun­ning alpine envi­ron­ment like no oth­er, this course pro­vides abun­dant train­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties and cul­mi­nates with one of the most sought after alpine ascents in the Cas­cades — Mount Bak­er. If you are pre­paring for an inde­pen­dent Mount Rainier climb on routes like the Dis­ap­point­ment Cleaver or the Emmons-Winthrop or want­i­ng to refresh your skills for a guid­ed ascent of Wash­ing­ton states’ high­est peak this course has all you need. The course cul­mi­nates in the appli­ca­tion of skills learned toward the ascent of Mount Bak­er via the Eas­t­on Glac­i­er or Cole­man- Dem­ming Glacier.
